Bastei Lübbe AG is going to publish the new novel from bestselling author
Cologne, September 28, 2016. Exciting news for Dan Brown fans all over the world: The global publishing phenomenon, author of the #1 international blockbusters Inferno and The Da Vinci Code, has written his latest Robert Langdon thriller. Doubleday will release the novel Origin in the US and Canada on September 26, 2017. Bastei Lübbe will publish the sure-fire bestseller simultaneously in the German speaking countries. In the words of Thomas Schierack, CEO of Bastei Lübbe AG: "With great excitement we are looking forward to the publication of Dan Brown's new work. And we are proud of the long relationship with one of the most successful writers on this planet. The economic significance is a major topic for our company."
A relationship, that began in 2003 with the tremendous success of Illuminati in Germany. "We are very happy to be one of Dan Brown's publishers right from the beginning. The personal relationship between Dan Brown and our publishing house means so much to us and each of his novels is of utmost importance to everyone at Lübbe", says Klaus Kluge, COO of Bastei Lübbe AG.
In keeping with his trademark style, Brown interweaves codes, science, religion, history, art and architecture into this new novel. Origin thrusts Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon into the dangerous intersection of humankind's two most enduring questions, and the earth-shaking discovery that will answer them.
